Well, Nick and I both took sick days today. At home right now, we’ve got Sniffly (me), Coughy (Nick), and Cuddly (Maggie). And Angry (Roxy).
We’re both feeling a little bit better after getting some more rest this morning, but the colds are still there.
After getting up with Maggie, feeding the pets, taking them out, and getting our showers, we decided to stay home.
So – we both took morning naps, before we even ate breakfast! That nap helped my headache a bit (thank goodness) and once we woke up, we were ready for some oatmeal.
I had some oatmeal with an old favorite: Nuts over Raspberries trail mix from Trader Joe’s (my last bag!).
- 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, pinch salt
- 1/2 banana, sliced
- 1/4 cup trail mix
After we ate, Maggie cuddled down on the couch again with Nick and we just hung out together until we were hungry for lunch.
Nick made us each a grilled cheese sandwich and we split a can of Progresso Italian Style Vegetable soup.
By this time, we were both feeling a little better and the skies had cleared up so it wasn’t so gray and gloomy outside.
The soup and grilled cheese definitely hit the spot.
My throat is feeling a little better, and my headache seems to have gone away. I think that little bit of extra sleep helped Nick feel better, too, but we’ll see. This cold has lasted over a week for me! I hope his goes away soon so he doesn’t have to deal with it all week.
Favorite kind of cheese?
